The red lake

The Red Lake in Romania - a perfect destination for a creepy movie?

The Red Lake in Romania is a very special filming destination. Firstly, it is the largest barrier lake in the Eastern Carpathian Mountains. In fact, legends abound about this lake. This is so because it is also known as “the Killer Lake” locally. This is partly because of the reddish, blood-like colour lent by the sediments carried through its’ waters. But partly this is also due to a horrific legend that many locals believe to be true.
It is said that when the slope of a large hill collapsed over a nearby village, the landfall killed most of the inhabitants of the village, as well the animals. To make matters creepier, of the forest that was covered by the lake only tree stumps remained, and over time they got turned into stone due to the sediments. Now, the spruce trunks that barely come out of the water look just like tombstones.
